If you’re talking about the best athlete you actually played against mine is easy — Derek Jeter.
#2 on that list would be a guy some of you might have heard of if you were mid-90s Big Ten basketball completists — Kenyon Murray (Iowa/Battle Creek Central).

Re: 2020 Presidential Election: Joe Biden vs Whoever the Republicans Nominate

The legit question I would ask is why he bothered to pay the $750 except as an obvious “fuck you”. Like D said given the sums involved would have been trivially easy to just pay $0. If he was trying to not be a dick could have paid something like $20K even on millions of “income”.

Wow. Horseshit PI call against the Rams decides the game.

Only problem is that’s called so inconsistently especially at end of the game. But think it was PI.

Best college player I’ve seen live might very well be Antonio Brown though I was really young when I saw Anthony Carter play and he was amazing. He would have been an NFL Hall of Famer if he was born about 20-25 years later.
